How to make gunpowder in the wild (all it takes is charcoal, sulfur, and potassium nitrate)

How to make gunpowder in the wild (all it takes is charcoal, sulfur, and potassium nitrate) | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
In a survival situation, primitive tools will get you by but for maximum survivability, you need mechanical weapons and explosives – and nothing beats the time-tested combustive mixture – gunpowder. Gunpowder is the earliest known chemical explosive. It burns fast (flash fast) and if placed inside a sealed container or shell, will create a quick burst of explosive energy. http://wildernessarena.com/supplies/weapons/how-to-make-gunpowder-charcoal-sulfur-potassium-nitrate

Naturally, when a mass shooting occurs and the media bombards the public with anti-gun rhetoric, we become concerned and inherently wonder, “Would the country be safer if gun ownership was restricted – or more tightly controlled?” Contrary to what we are often told, guns have no bearing on the level of violence in a society. http://wildernessarena.com/survival-news/guns-violence-in-america-truth-government-officials-do-not-want-you-to-know

Snipers - how they operate and how to avoid their gun sights

Snipers - how they operate and how to avoid their gun sights | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
Professional snipers, particularly military-trained snipers, are well versed in marksmanship, field craft, reconnaissance, observation, surveillance, target acquisition and of course, camouflage. Avoiding a sniper attack can be nearly impossible but by understanding how they work, and following a few simple avoidance tactics, it’s possible you may be able to outwit them – and survive. http://wildernessarena.com/dangers/hostile-areas/snipers-how-they-operate-how-to-avoid-gun-sights

How to survive a mass public shooting

How to survive a mass public shooting | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
Despite what many believe, random mass public shootings are not uncommon occurrences. In October 2014, Harvard Research showed the rate of mass shootings has tripled since 2012. In the event that you are caught in or near a public shooting rampage, there are steps you can take to survive a mass public shooting. http://wildernessarena.com/urban-survival-2/urban-hostile-areas/how-to-survive-a-public-shooting
